Description



About the Book



French presents the eagerly anticipated follow-up to the "New York Times"-bestselling psychological thriller "In the Woods."



Book Synopsis



New York Times bestselling author Tana French, author of the forthcoming novel The Searcher, is "the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years" (The Washington Post) and "inspires cultic devotion in readers" (The New Yorker).

"Required reading for anyone who appreciates tough, unflinching intelligence and ingenious plotting." --The New York Times

Now airing as a Starz series.

In the "compellingˮ (The Boston Globe) and "pitch perfectˮ (Entertainment Weekly) follow-up to Tana French's runaway bestseller In the Woods, Cassie Maddox has transferred out of the Dublin Murder Squad--until an urgent telephone call brings her back to an eerie crime scene.

The victim looks exactly like Cassie and carries ID identifying herself as Alexandra Madison, an alias Cassie once used as an undercover cop. Suddenly, Cassie is back undercover, to find out not only who killed this young woman, but, more importantly, who she was.

The Likeness is a supremely suspenseful story exploring the nature of identity and belonging.



Review Quotes



"[Tana French] aces her second novel. The Likeness [is a] nearly pitch-perfect follow-up to her 2007 debut thriller, In the Woods."
--Entertainment Weekly**

"Tana French puts a clever twist on every lonely child's fantasy of leading a parallel life when she creates an alternate identity for her detective in THE LIKENESS... Cassie is a character -- the eternal lost child -- you can really care about."
--New York Times Book Review

"The writing is glorious, and the characters and drama so compelling"
--The Boston Globe*

"Savor French's turns of phrase and simmering suspense until the prospect of finishing shuts all distractions out."
--The Baltimore Sun

"The verve of her writing illuminates the uncanny experience of stepping into someone else's life. [The Likeness is] a sophisticated thriller."
--The Dallas Morning News

Praise for Tana French

"When you read Ms. French -- and she has become required reading for anyone who appreciates tough, unflinching intelligence and ingenious plotting -- make only one assumption: All of your initial assumptions are wrong"
--The New York Times

Tana French is the most interesting, most important crime novelist to emerge in the past 10 years.
--The Washington Post

[Tana French] inspires cultic devotion in readers...most crime fiction is diverting; French's is consuming.
--The New Yorker

"To say Tana French is one of the great thriller writers is really too limiting. Rather she's simply this: a truly great writer."­
--Gillian Flynn

"French is a poet of mood and a master builder of plots." ­
--The Washington Post

"One of the most distinct and exciting new voices in crime writing."
--The Wall Street Journal

"French does something fresh with every novel, each one as powerful as the last but in a very different manner. Perhaps she has superpowers of her own? Whatever the source of her gift, it's only growing more miraculous with every book."
--Salon.com
